“Nutella Like” Chocolate Spread

Move over Nutella.  Welcome a newer, healthier version.

Actually I made a chocolate spread before.  You can read about it here.  It’s made with sunflower seeds so it is the best option for people with tree nut allergies.  But I can eat pecans so I tend to make this one more frequently than the sunflower seed one.  I think this is a bit creamier.

It goes well on toast, rice cakes, celery and straight out of the container.  Eat it however you want!

    I love that you used pecans in here–I don’t use them enough! And I love any kind of chocolate nut butter, of course. Thanks for linking to WellnessWeekend! 🙂

    Do you toast your pecans first or just put them in raw?
